Dr. Wendy Gardner, 2014 PNW Section Exemplary Service Award.

Dr. Wendy Gardner is remarkable! She is a researcher and a teacher at Thompson Rivers University and a hard-working member of the Pacific Northwest Section, Society for Range Management. She does it all—from organizing and planning field excursions to writing professional and extension publications germane to British Columbia grasslands and land management.
She has served as the BC Chapter President not once, but twice! She organized the 2014 PNW fall tour this year in Kamloops, the PNW 2010 summer tour in Kelowna, the 2008 PNW fall meeting and tour in 2008, the PNW summer tour in Kamloops in 2007, and the Mountain Pine Beetle conference at Thompson Rivers University in 2007.
Perhaps her greatest achievements have been with her students. She is a superb teacher, inspiring her students to be the best they can be. She has both graduate and undergrad students who have made lasting marks — for the better — on British Columbia’s grasslands.
And, Wendy is also a wife, mother, and athlete.
Dr. Wendy Gardner is a strong member of the PNW Section; a tireless worker for land improvement; and the sort of teacher each of us wish we had had when we were in school!
The Pacific Northwest Section, Society for Range Management is pleased to honor Dr. Wendy Gardner as its 2014 Exemplary Service Awardee.
